Halloween Costumes for Pets -- Is it a Good Thing?

petcostume103110.jpg

Halloween is no longer just a child's holiday in America--these days adults and even our pets are putting on costumes and celebrating. But not everyone sees this as a good thing, particularly where our pets are concerned.

The New Yorker enters the pet costume debate in On Dressing Up Your Pets by Alexandra Horowitz, the author of Inside of a Dog: What Dogs See, Smell, and Know:

What might a dog (or cat or hamster or parrot) think of being costumed and festooned, or forced to don a hat and fake mustache in our celebration of Halloween? Inasmuch as I can speak to the experience of any animal (including members of my own species), my answer is "The dog, he does not like it".

But she sees both sides and writes an interesting article.

The Houston Chronicle also examines the issue in Experts differ on whether Halloween costumes embarrass dogs. Sonya Fitzpatrick, author of Sonya Fitzpatrick, the Pet Psychic: What the Animals Tell Me testifies:

I talk to thousands of animals, and even if people laugh at them if they have been cut too short, it really hurts their feelings," she said. She has seven dogs and uses only bandannas for their accessories.

And Tamar Geller, author of 30 Days to a Well-Mannered Dog: The Loved Dog Method claims that "dogs don't like to stand out."

In any event, considering life's vicissitudes, pet costumes are relatively minor. These are the most-searched Halloween costumes for dogs in 2010, according to Yahoo!

1. Batman
2. Ewok
3. Slinky dog
4. Yoda
5. Taco

What's your opinion? Do you like to dress up your pets and do you think they enjoy it?
